Ever since I started reading Harry Potter with my son, I've fallen in love with all the amazing details of the books. Its so magical and mysterious, and just pulls on your imagination. 

I've been wanting to throw a Harry Potter inspired party for a while now, and I'm so excited to share the details of our very first fall feast. We invited a few close friends over (Who also love HP!) and had a really fun evening together. We had a potion making class, fall feast (pizza...the perfect party food!) and then a movie showing afterwards.

I really wanted to make the dinner table feel like a Hogwarts feast. The floating candles made the whole table glow and I loved the soft effect it made. 

Each table setting included Harry's signature glasses, a pouch with Gold Galleons & a pin for them to keep. I love using props and small gifts as part of the decor that guests get to take home as well. 

We had Sorting House cupcakes, which were essentially store bought cupcakes filled with different colors for each of the houses. The guests each got to choose one and when they were eating them they got to see what house they would have been sorted into. I loved how fun this was. Some of the kids already knew what houses they were part of, but it was still really exciting and I just told them that the cupcakes may not be as accurate as the sorting hat. 

My sweet friends each brought a treat - spooky jell-o & the cutest owl/lightening bolt sugar cookies. They brought the whole theme together!

We did one activity before dinner which was a hit! The kids got to make their very own magical potions. I soaked water beads in water to plump them up, and we used them as a base for our potion making. I got glass jars from the dollar store and the kids filled them up with water beads. Then we added a variety of specialty viles which were filled with glitter and sequins. They kids loved this activity! 

And of course for our movie night we had to have a variety of treats. I hand painted the Honeydukes sign, and we had jars of candies for the guests to snack on during the party and movie showing. 

The kids have been so excited leading up to this party. And we honestly had the best time. A smaller group made it extra fun and I hope we get to continue this tradition for years to come. .

And I have to share some small shops who helped with the most amazing table setting and décor for our little party.

My husband and I got our first Endy mattress a few years into our marriage when we upgraded to a King size bed. We honestly loved the ease of purchasing and have been enjoying our sleeps ever since. 

We recently did some renovations to our ground floor and I have been wanting to upgrade the girls shared bedroom for a while now. We finally settled on some small upgrades, including new mattresses for them. 

I'm really excited to be sharing our journey and honest review with Endy!

We live right in the heart of the city, and real estate here comes at a price! Our home is definitely more than comfortable enough for us, but with only 4 rooms, the girls have to share a bedroom. For now, we love having them share a bedroom! I love that they have such a close relationship and they definitely take comfort in having each other close by. They have always been really great sleepers and we were so excited to be able to help them continue their sleep journey with their own Endy mattresses.

Our girls have always loved spending time with us in our bedroom. They love cuddling with us in the early mornings, snuggling up with a few good books and having movie afternoons in our bed. They always say our mattress is so soft! There's something to be said about getting comfy and cozy in a big bed!

When we surprised them with their own mattresses, I knew they would be over the moon that they were getting the same mattresses that we sleep on for their own beds. Our new mattresses are such great quality and we love that they are Canadian made. Not only are they extremely comfortable, but they have great support which is so important.  Both girls love getting into bed each night, and they are getting such a great sleep, which is something we're all happy with. 

As the weather has been cooling off, Endy's proprietary Comfort Foam is temperature neutral which helps support you through all the seasons. It maintains the same level of comfort and support in all weather. 

One of the girls favorite things about their beds are the customizable pillows! They loved being able to take out handfuls of the bamboo charcoal memory foam to the firmness level they were comfortable with. I really appreciate that each of their pillows suits their own personal needs and that it can grow with them as needed. And they always comment on how fluffy and soft their pillows feel. And as a mama, the best part is that their pillow covers are 100% cotton and washable with a hypoallergenic microfiber fill. You never know when you're going to need to give them a good washing!

The girls have been so happy with their new beds! I already love hearing them giggling, playing and reading in their new beds. I hope they continue to make lots of magical memories together!

If you've ever wanted to try out an Endy, I can't recommend them enough. If you're interested in trying one out click HERE to shop! 

And I love that Endy stands behind their mattresses. They offer a 100-night risk-free trial to make sure that you love your Endy!
